New Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is a mid-sized luxury SUV to bust the rivals like BMW X4

All new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe suits in an identical profile to the greater Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and supplies an immediate rival to the segment-busting BMW X4. Shown first in concept on the 2015 Shanghai motor show, the production version takes numerous design cues from that exhibit concept car.

Similar Style to Greater GLE Coupe

Shrink and longer than the GLC SUV on which it’s centred (by using eight and 4 centimetres respectively) the brand new car looks keen to paste its sporty proposition. You get a brand new spoofy roofline teamed with a less steep rake to the windscreen pillars to give a chopped, coupe-like appearance.

There’s no rear window wiper as, according to Mercedes-Benz, rain water will run off the swoopy roof.Across the range the GLC Coupe is differentiated by means of a single-louvered radiator grille and huge lateral air inlets to emphasize the car’s athletic preference.

Eight engines including a plug-in hybrid and AMG version

From the autumn 2016 launch Mercedes-Benzes engines trio can be your simplest picks, with extra items brought in by way of the tip of the year.

These include the 350e 4MATIC plug-in hybrid which should produce 59 to 64g/km of CO2 regardless of producing 316bhp. Assume a zero-62mph time of around 5.9 seconds too.

For flagship efficiency you’ll need the Mercedes-AMG GLC43 4MATIC with a V6 biturbo engine and 362bhp, resulting in a zero-62mph time of lower than 5 seconds. We’ll be coping with that in it’s possess overview, though.

Sporting events suspension and driving modes
